Soon will be Alpaca maintenance

It’s been quite some time since our fluffy alpacas have been up in the paddock. Down in the valley we hardly see them but tomorrow will be time for the half-yearly maintenance, meaning drenching, vaccination and toenail clipping.

The girls will be delighted. Yeah, maybe not so much, but they’ll need it. 😉
